Back in 2002, I still identified as a Republican.  And while I was slowly peeling myself away from that mindset during those years, I probably would have offered some sort of limp, noncommittal “It’s just an equal opposing viewpoint to that commie liberal bastion CNN!” in defense of Fox News.  All I knew is that most of my online friends hated Fox News for reasons I had yet to comprehend, and I figured maybe taking a cheap potshot at it here would give me some insurance to do some liberal-directed joke later, who knows.
